Most Worn: Eyeshadows.

Up untill last year I very rarely wore eyeshadow except for nights out. It just always always made me feel too done up for daytime and I never really found shades I loved or suited me particularly well but now I have! Yes they're all almost identical in colour but when I find something I like I stick with it. I now consider eyeshadow an important step in my make up routine and its all down to these three beauties...

Urban Decay Sin | Chanel Illusion D'ombre Emerveille | MAC All That Glitters

Urban Decay Virgin Along Top

All three are very similar, neutral and shimmery but without being over the top. The main reason I love these shades is because they help me look more awake. No matter how tired I am they somehow manage to make my eyes look bright. All three are easy to apply and look great worn alone which is great for cack handed girls like myself who arent great at creating fancy eyeshadow looks. Another shadow worth a mention is Urban Decay Virgin. The last few months I'v been using it as an inner corner highlight and prefer it to some others I'd been using as its bright but without looking stark, it just helps to make me look more awake when really I'm feeling like a zombie.

What eyeshadow do you always reach for?

  1. These kind of shades are my favourite, I have never tried all that glitters though. Virgin is one my all time favourite colours, I am so glad you can buy it as a single eyeshadow now. xx
